Today more than ever we are bombarded with fake news, bad news, and negative news, and it infiltrates our lives 24/7. It’s on every channel and on every device. There is no escape. It screams the loudest and demands the most attention…until now.
As we (Pam, Aimee, and Sara) prepare for our next Women ON Point leadership summit in Chicago on July 19-21, we are confident that we can drown out the mind-numbing negative news with not just one, but four success stories this month.
It’s not a secret that those who invest in themselves are exponentially more successful than those who do not. Every successful tycoon from Warren Buffett to Bill Gates enthusiastically commits 10% of their annual income to personal and professional development. They invest in training, education, coaching, and mastermind groups to ensure they stay on top and continue to grow.
We are beyond thrilled to announce that the same tycoon-type mentality is going gangbusters at Women ON Point. Women who have attended our leadership summits have experienced new dream jobs, promotions, raises, and are leveraging what they’ve learned in innovative ways to pay it forward.
Here are 4 incredible Women ON Point alumni we are honored to highlight in this “Success Spotlight”…
Ana Battung – attended the Women ON Point leadership summit in Long Beach, CA 2017
Congratulations to Ana on her recent promotion! Ana was previously the Associate Director of Sales for Hyatt Regency Long Beach and Hyatt Centric the Pike, and will now take her place as the Global Sales Director on the Hyatt Sales Force Americas Team. There’s even more great news…Ana has also been appointed as one of the Executive Committee Leaders for the Women@Hyatt West Coast Chapter.
Here’s what Ana has to say…”Women ON Point was an absolutely amazing experience! It brought on a new perspective to my leadership style and highlighted specific areas of opportunity for me to focus on. I now have the tools and resources available to continue to propel me throughout my career and allow me to pay it forward for other women. I highly recommend Women ON Point to anyone regardless of where they are in their career and in their life. It’s truly the best way to invest in yourself and you will make friends that will last a lifetime!”
Katie Dittman – attended the Women ON Point leadership summit in Beaver Creek, CO 2016
Congratulations to Katie on her recent promotion! Katie was previously the Manager of Global Culture and Talent Management for Hyatt Hotels Corporation and is now the Manager of Global Operations Communications.
Here’s what Katie has to say…”I am thrilled to be taking on a new role within Hyatt. Women ON Point was just the push I needed to validate my ability to go for a completely new position. I learned a lot from spending time with women from different industries, companies, and in a variety of positions. Working with Aimee gave me a lot more confidence to sell myself in interviews, ask for what I deserve, and promote my capabilities in a new light. She also completely made-over my résumé which was MUCH needed! I’m grateful for my WONP experience!”
Wren Brotzman – attended the Women ON Point leadership summit in Beaver Creek, CO 2016
Congratulations to Wren on her recent promotion! Wren was previously the Chief Operating Officer at RMC, and is now the Executive Vice President.
Nicole Bunbury Sjowall – attended the Women ON Point leadership summit in Beaver Creek, CO 2016
Congratulations to Nicole on her commitment to “pay it forward”. Nicole is the owner of Bunbury & Associates Realtors and was so inspired by what she learned at Women ON Point she kicked off the company-wide annual meeting with personalized “Brag Books” for all team members to capture their personal and professional successes. Nicole also invited Sara to deliver specific Women ON Point presentations including personal branding, mindset, and executive presence to her team.
Here’s what Nicole has to say…”Women ON Point leadership summit was such an empowering experience! There was so much useful information for me to re-energize my leadership and communication development. Sara, Pam, and Aimee are so effective in teaching us how managing our professional development can launch us into becoming successful leaders. Women ON Point is a game changer!”
BONUS “Success Spotlight”
Professional Women’s Club of Chicago (PWCC) – We are big believers that no one achieves any level of success alone, and therefore we’d like to shine a special light on our Chicago power partner, PWCC. PWCC creates opportunities for Chicago-area professional women to make connections that inspire personal and professional growth, support business and personal goals, and enrich lives. The membership consists of successful female corporate executives, junior and senior professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals, artists, prominent individuals in their industries, businesses, and communities.
In the spirit of “women supporting women”, we encourage you to reach out and congratulate your fellow Women ON Point alumni and keep those connections alive and well. It’s easy to get mired down by an endless to-do list, to get distracted by fake news, and to get overwhelmed by life events — but it’s also easy to choose to focus on the positive, to celebrate key accomplishments, and to cultivate those quality relationships in your life.
And, we are here to help you do all of that and more!
There are so many women who could benefit from the Women ON Point magic, but there are only a few spots left in Chicago. We are reaching out to you, our valued alumni, to help us identify those individual women in need of this transformational professional development experience. We want to positively impact more lives, make an even greater difference, and catapult more women to the Next Level!
